I think that this is the right heating element for my model but I was just wondering if my model had 1/4 in terminal size or 5/16 in?
Answer Hello Will! Yes, the heating element 5300622034 is the correct heating element. Your unit has 5/16 terminals on the coil/housing assembly. Thanks!
my dryer when i push the start buttom just make a sound like "click",a tecnician ck the board plate (green plate)and is ok,before i had a problem, the dryer not work because the electric dryer heating element was broke,so was easy to me just tied together.do you think this is the problem and changing the element fix the problem?
Answer Ernesto, Did the technician check the the thermal limiter 134120900 for an "open" circuit ? If the dryer overheated and the fuse opened, the power to the control and motor are eliminated, and the dryer wont start and run. Replacing the element will not solve the start and run issue with the dryer, but it does need to be replaced 131553900 , not just for heating, but for safety as well. Thanks
I ordered a heating coil for my dryer and I was wondering if I ordered the right part. The part number I ordered is 5300622032.

Replace the heater element still no heat. What I check next?
Answer Hello Arthur. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
I replaced the heating element and now when the dryer is started it shoots sparks out and when turned off over night stayed hot to the touch
Answer Hello Linda. The element 5300622034 is touching metal and will need to be replaced again and this time make sure it is not touching any of the metal on the unit. Hope this helps.
I replace the coil on the heating element on my affinity frigidaire dryer and it heats up good but sparks are flying all over, so stopped it and let it sit over night and now it is still pretty hot to the touch.
Answer Linda, You did clean out and vaccuum out any debris from the heater housing, and you're sure you didn't overstretch the element when you installed it on the insulators. Check the heat shield on the back of the drum, make sure it's not damaged or bent. At this point, it sounds like the element is in contact with the housing, and is applying 120 VAC through the element and it's staying hot in the dryer. You'll need to dismantle the dryer and re check your work. Thanks and Good Luck
How to replace heater coil?
Answer Hello Scott. You will need to disconnect the power to the unit. Next release the clips under the front corners of the dryer and lift the top panel upward. Now unplug the door switch and remove the screws to remove the front panel off the dryer. Once removed, you will need to release the belt and remove the drum from the dryer. Now you can access and replace the heating element 5300622034 in the dryer. Hope this helps.
